The title sucks, but the music most likely won't

The title doesn't suck. The band was called Xecutioner before they changed their name to Obituary. I think the title is a great reference to the old name.

Accually it was Executioner to Xecutioner to Obituary... i had an interview with John Tardy .. read one of the questions below with an answer. btw the news is great but you think a new vocal will enter or the fixed one will return?



"From "Executioner" to "Xecutioner" to "Obituary"... How can you explain that? And why did u change the bands name?

Executioner was our first name and it was not very original. I am sure there were hundreds of other bands named executioner at the time. Before we released Slowly We Rot we thought it would be best to change our name! "

I never liked "Xecutioner" in the first place, so a reference to a bad name is still bad for me

I agree with Revelation. Were they still thrash when they dropped the E or had they begun their deathness?
APOHAKC - 31.05.2007 at 03:37  
I don't like that name at all.. but name is not important, music is important.. Go Obituary!

Maybe they should have named it "Need A Get-Out-Of-Jail Free Card" ...

Looking forward to it.
